COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE VAPORIZER is a golden-hued Pale Ale that features a beautifully hoppy aroma and flavor. The malt is 100% Gambrinus Pilsner, our sweet and supple house malt from Gambrinus Malting in British Columbia. The hops are primarily of the Challenger variety, grown on a single farm in the Yakima Valley. We dry-hop THE VAPORIZER to pump up the hoppy goodness. Itís an appetizingly dry, clean and pure-tasting take on a hoppy Pale Ale. Brewed with Gambrinus Pilsner malt and Challenger hops. 6% ABV, 50 BU

i see where the belgian pale or ipa comparisons come in - it seems a little unfocused perhaps - like a hybrid apa/bipa. Grassy hops, yeastier than expected. Not clean, but crisp finish. It was ok.

Appearance: pours with a medium white head, the beer is a light gold slightly hazy color Aroma: pale grain, some grass, subtle but smells good Taste: pale malt grain initially, pretty strong bitter kick, Palate: average carbonation, bitter aftertaste, light mouthfeel Overall: pretty good, nice pale malt backbone, the hops add a good bitter kick and aroma, could use more hop flavor besides the bitterness, easily drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mariuspoenari (1214) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Clear orange pour, with a nice head, in the style of a Belgian strong ale or a tripel. The smell is surprisingly like a Belgian pale ale, as well (I was expecting a typical American hop-bomb): citrusy Belgian yeast throughout, with some soft cheese present, as well. The taste - bread, white wine, citrusy hops and a bitter backbone. Very dry.

500 ml bottle
At a midweek Meet and Greet I was able to sample a number of Double Mountainís offerings This representative release fell squarely in the middle - an unremarkable pale ale that gets the job done without any fuss.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy base looked like unfiltered hay juice covered by a layer of protective white foam. Grass and citrus set the tone although the bitterness is not as intense as expected from the initial deScription.

Flavor / Palate - Citrus and bitterness permeate the profile which does not deviate too far from a blend of herbs, grass clippings, and lemon. The results donít blow one away but do manage to get the job done. I probably wouldnít go crazy over a bottle. However as a starter for a session this release gets the job done.

Me thinks me expected something totally different but me thinks me glad this wasnít what was íexpectedí. Heavy grass dump into the air during the pour and a hint that maybe this is off - that was mainly due to my steadfast mindset of a beastly APA. In a way it kind of reminds me of a weak ass BIPA - reminds - not íisí. Itís got a bit of weed stank to it, bit of fruity citrus... is this a pilsner? I think itís a pil. Flaves - dry dry dry, bit of grass, loaf, lemon sourness. If I want a pil Iíll buy this instead.

Heldere gouden kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, pils. Smaakt fruitig, pils, orange.

UXO (1343) - CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Appearance: hazy pale straw with one fat finger of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, herbal, resin, doughy yeast and pale malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Palate: light to medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration mildly bitter finish. (3/5) A mild-natured APA. Nothing too challenging, but easy-drinking and refreshing. I assume the name and the ďherbalĒ description is supposed to underscore some dank west-coast character comparable to pot, but I honestly donít get any of that. (13/20)

Pale hazy yellow with white head. Bitter but thatís about it, with no actual flavor to make it interesting.

500ml brown bottle. Pale yellow with haze. Big white head. Aroma - grassy, lemony. Taste is grainy, grass and mild citrus. Finish is grainy and dry with light hops. Regular body and carbonation. A bit dull.

tricksta_p (3148) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Aroma of soft malt, hay, floral notes, fruits, some citrus, herbal notes, hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Not a stellar hop bomb APA, more like a hoppy Pilsner.
